People from different households in Scotland will be able to meet at a distance in a garden or a park from tomorrow, Nicola Sturgeon has said.

The first minister urged Scots to meet up in groups no larger than eight people and to practice social distancing when they see others, avoiding close contact, sharing food and going inside other people's houses.

The move comes at odds with the advice of the UK government for England, where people are still advised against visiting friends and family.
